Cosplay and Costumes, Weapons and Props

Below is a collection of weapons and other props,

I have created for various Cosplays

(Hand made from recycled materials)

I really enjoy designing, building and decorating props for my Cosplays. Although costumes are the base of a Cosplay. The props, large and small, really define the character and brings them to life. And I have always been more interested in the swords and weapons anyway!
